Common Snook (Centropomus undecimalis)

Removed from the state list in 2001

The FWC received a petition to reclassify the Common Snook in 1999.  The snook was evaluated according to the listing process rules and it was determined removal from the Species of Special Concern List was warranted. Final action was taken in 2001 and the Common Snook was removed from the Endangered, Threatened, and Species of Special Concern List.  Below are links to the petition that was received in 1999, the final biological status report, and a copy of the 2000 stock assessment that was used as the species-specific management plan.
